7 Tips to Prevent Bathroom Mold

As the hot and humid months of summer are quickly approaching, it is a good time to implement some practices that will prevent or reduce bathroom mold growth. Every bathroom accumulates moisture but by battling mold, you will keep the space clean, safe, healthy and also attractive.

What causes bathroom mold?

  • High moisture levels due to lack of proper ventilation
  • Leaky plumbing pipes and fixtures

Heat and moisture accumulate on a regular basis in bathrooms, providing the perfect environment for mold to grow. Not only can mold impact the appearance of your bathroom, it can also cause damage to your walls, floors, ceilings, and even your health. Mold prevention is essential in ensuring your bathroom is in good working order.

Follow these 7 easy tips to keep your bathroom mold-free!

  1. Check for Leaks – Examine all fixtures and piping under the sink for leaks which may quickly produce mold growth.
  2. Wipe Down Bathroom Surfaces – After a bath or shower, squeegee excess water off shower walls. This eliminates at least 75% of the moisture that supports mold and mildew growth.
  3. Turn on the Ventilation Fan – Every bathroom needs a powerful fan that should run during the shower or bath. It should remain running for about thirty minutes after to effectively suck the moisture out of the air.
  4. Keep Minimal Items in Shower/Tub – Store any necessary bottles or toys in wire baskets or on hooks. This will allow everything to drip dry.
  5. Clean the Bathroom Weekly – As dust is a food source for mold, dust your bathroom regularly with a dampened microfiber cloth. Scrub the toilets, counters, sinks, tub and walls, as well.
  6. Seal Grout Lines – If you have tile, it is important to seal grout lines once a year. A standard grout sealant is sufficient to prevent mold from growing in between the tiles.
  7. Manage Household Humidity Levels – If your house is already humid, it is advisable to use a dehumidifier or run the AC to help the moisture in the air.

By following these 7 easy steps, mold growth should reduce significantly. Remember – the best way to fight mold is to keep the bathroom dry! By implementing the practices above, your bathroom should continue to be a clean and healthy space to enjoy.

5-STAR GOOGLE REVIEWS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

I had a leak from my upstairs bathroom which was coming from an old 3” copper drain pipe connected to the toilet. Tim from Zeek Plumbing replaced the 3’ section of drain pipe with plastic and braced the new pipe to make sure it remained sloped in the right direction. Tim also reinforced the flooring under the toilet which had weakened over the years, and now the support is very strong. Tim was very professional and most importantly wanted to make sure the job was done right!

Purchased a new natural gas grill and needed it to be hooked up to the gas line. Called Zeek in the morning and they came and hooked it up the same day! They were extremely professional. I would highly recommend Zeek Plumbing and will definitely use them in the future should the need arise.

We used Zeek a few weeks ago for a clogged pipe. At that time we noticed a leak in our septic pipe in the basement. So we asked them to give us a price to replace the pipe. The price sound reasonable so we set it up for them to come back. Tim, Rj and Rich where here 8:00am sharp and went right to work. We where only without toilets for a few hours. They did a amazing job and where finished by 3 pm. All 3 guys are extremely professional and and very friendly. They work well together and all enjoy what they are doMy wife and I would highly recommend them.

Super Bowl Sunday morning, Zeek Plumbing didn't hesitate to respond when we called them for assistance. Our bathroom backed up and flooded our basement causing us to make an emergency request to them. They were at our home immediately and saved the day!
